Very comfortable. Washes beautifully. Wish it wasn't so expensive. Anne from Shorewood, WI USA

The bra looked nice and appeared to be the right size and was pleasing to the touch. However, although 32" was the correct size of the band, while wearing it, my bust bulged out of the top. My prev. bras are 32C and even a less coverage cup does not cause those upper bulges. Even under very conservative tops, these bulges appear to be an extra set of smaller female anatomy perched atop a normal one. I don't understand, because I am not large busted. I used to wear a B cup and wanted fuller coverage for V neck tops, so I increased the cup size to C. I ordered 3 different styles of bras in 32C, one at $69 and two others less expensive. They all fit similarly and were equally pleasing to the eye (when not wearing it) as to what I was hoping for. They just don't cover all my bust. Once again, I would say that I am between a B & C cup so a C should cover all of me. In addition, it is comfortable to wear the band at the tightest closure, so I am def. a 32/ So, I am still wearing my much older bras that are aging and need to be replaced. I like pretty bras and have always had them. Recently I ordered a Genie bra, not yet arrived. I don't think it is pretty but I am hoping for a natural look from the outside. Thank you for providing a place for me to explain this problem. I hope you can help with an understanding of this problem. As I said, I have some B cups that don't give me bulges on the top of the cups, but they are wearing out. I have entered the style and the # of these prev. worn bras but they are no longer avail. Another issue: A 34C cup fits well, but the band is too large. I would think according to your measurement info., that a 32C should fit band wise and it does, and the cup should be the same C size. But the cup on a 32C is smaller than the cup on a 34C. THAT IS THE MAIN PROBLEM. Why do you make the C cup smaller on the 32 than the 34C?

Anita Response: The consumer indicates that her breast is bulging out, which is an indication that the cup is too small. A woman’s body is changing for a lot of reasons like hormonal changes etc., so it’s not uncommon, that the cup size can change with the time. While wearing your bras, they adjust a little bit to your body changes, which is probably the reason why her old bras still fit, but all three new bra styles are too small. She is indicating that the cup of a 34C bra fits her well. According to international sizing studies, the cup volume also increases with the band size, so the cup volume of a 34C is close to a 32D. I would recommend to try a 32D. Fayth from Nashville. Tn. USA

The cup size is too small for me and I haven't had the time to deal with returning it - so I've been wearing the bra anyway - with the dreaded boobs spilling out over the top issue. I don't know if the size up would be better or too big. I had another one with the next size up cup size and it was too big, but the band size was also a size bigger. Besides from the cup size, the band size is good, the straps are comfortable, it feels good and supportive with the straps shortened quite a bit. It is quite supportive for no underwire. It doesn't give a lot of coverage - so can't wear with anything sheer or tight. I used to always wear underwires and they stopped being comfortable for me, so I'm trying to find a substitute with no underwire that is still supportive. Sara from Easthampton, MA

Very disappointed. Have order this style & size before & was very pleased. This time the bra ran extremely small., probably sized incorrectly. Returned. margherite from merritt island fl usa

I love this bra! I did now know that a wire-fee bra could have good support. It's also very comfy! Angelina

This item presents as a firm cup bra in reality it is soft fabric and you can see through the t shirt. The reason I bought this expensive bra was for the smooth look. Now this expensive bra will sit in the drawer and I will never wear it.

Anita Response: The customer doesn't really explain the firm cup, but I would assume that she expected a padded bra . #5493 is one of our bestselling bras and our customers like it because it's a soft fabric but still gives a lot of support. If the customer is looking for a t-shirt bra we would recommend a padded bra #5440. Joan from Canada

Have previously bought in size 34 but it didn't come in a big enough cup size. Ordered 36C and 36D. Kept the D, returned the C. Very comfortable bra! Wish it had a little bit more modesty-type padding but still like it and will order it again. JB from Canada

THE MOST comfortable bra I have ever owned. It provides great support even at my 44E Size without poking wires and the straps stay in place. I strongly suggest you try one. Ann from Columbia, SC

Positively the most comfortable, best fitting bra I have EVER worn in my life. It lifts my heavy bosom without wires which are painful for me. The straps are like lingerie and stay in place. Try this bra if you don't try any other for support and comfort! Ann from Columbia, SC USA

Comfortable and soft but fabric not too breathable. I like that the cups are stretchy so fit is perfect--nipples do show though if that's an issue. Sue from Santa Cruz, CA

This bra is so comfortable that you forget you are wearing one. The material is soft, yet holds you in all the right places. I like everything about it. The comfort, the smooth cup, the straps that do not fall off your shoulders. What more can I say, a beautiful and comfortable bra. I will purchase more in the future. Karen from Neenah, Wisconsin

Unfortunately, I had to return this because I got the wrong size and doesn't come in the size I need, but except for the band being too tight, I loved this bra. The cups were great, good shape, fit like a glove, perfect! I'm sorry it doesn't come in 50c, which is what I really need. Mary from Antelope, CA, USA

I didn't like this bra because the cups were too 'pointy' and did not look natural on me. I returned it, but will continue my search for the perfect, or almost perfect, bra. Mary from Antelope, CA, USA

This is the very best bra I have owned in decades of searching for the perfect bra. When I first tried it, I thought the fitter was crazy as the band was very tight. The cups were smooth but very molding. After I bought it and wore it a few times, it loosened up a bit at a time and became the most comfortable, supportive bra on the market in my size! The unique Anita stretch fabrics are unlike anything by US bra manufacturers. It is smooth, silky and the stretch cups hold/mold in a comfortable yet very supportive way. The only downside is that after a lot of wear and washing, it becomes slightly less supportive , not loose , it just does not give the same wonderful lift. Still, after daily wearing and machine(delicate cycle) laundering for over a year and a half, this is not unexpected, even for an expensive bra. I have bought many of these bras, as I cycle them through, they last longer than my original( constantly worn )"test bra". Lisa from California

Love the bra. The fit is a nice full 42 E (DD). It's light and the straps are wider in front. My only problem is that it doesn't conceal as much as I would like. barbara from naples, fl

This is a comfortable bra, and I like that it's cut lower around the armpits, but the cups feel a bit too small. I also feel it doesn't give the support I would have expected for such an expensive wireless bra. Renee from Cypress, Texas ysa

This is the most comfortable bra I have ever worn. There's no adornment, but I'll live with that for the comfort. There is enough support for me and I like the look under clothing. It's a keeper. Kate from White River Junction, VT

Really support and gives a good shape. The straps padded and the whole bra is very soft. I am very sensitive, so maybe it's just me, but there is a piece of material between the breasts that rubs a bit. Maybe I just need to get used to it. Samara from Canada

Most comfortable bra that I have worn in a long time. Pricey, yet worth it. As I have aged, I find I need a larger cup size and this size is very hard to find. I love that the fabric isn't itchy. Patty from Cumberland, RI, USA

These bras are so comfortable - a little hard to find so I was thrilled to receive them so quickly - If you want comfort and support without the wire this is the bra - Not too much elastic on the part that touches my body - no seams or stitching that itches - all day comfort - my older ones have stretched out a little - but over the past few years I have purchased at least a dozen of these bras - just got 3 new ones and will retire 3 and order 3 more soon.
